- Wedding: December 1969
My fiance proposed to me December ’11 and it was honestly the best day of my life. We’ve been together since high school, and I never knew if he’d make that kind of committment to me. Don’t get me wrong, I’m very happy about being engaged to him, but I’m really frustrated too. I don’t feel engaged, or anthing remotely close to a bride to be, because every time someone asks me if i’m engaged or when my wedding is, i have to tell them it’s not until 2015 or 2016. He wants to wait until i finish my senior year of college, and until we both have stable jobs. I understand his reasonings, and I admire how responsible he’s being about this… but at the same time, I want to marry him. I want to start planning, and really feel like I’m getting married. He even said he wants to elope after i graduate, and i’m okay with that too.. if that’s the case id rather elope sooner rather than later… to sum up, i want to get married within the next year or so and he just won’t have it. i don’t know what to do, because my frustration builds up more and more everyday. Any advice from people who’ve dealt with long engagements themselves?
